Syfy announced today that The Magicians has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes on the eve of the fantasy's drama's Season 4 premiere, which kicks off tomorrow at 9:00pm picking up from last spring, with the heroes unsure of who they are and being sought by the monster.

Adapted from the Lev Grossman novel trilogy of the same name, The Magicians follows a graduate student who enrolls at a magical college only to discover that the fantasy world from popular children's books is actually based in truth and poses a danger to his world.

Today's early pickup ensures there is plenty more of The Magicians for fans to look forward to. Season 4's 13-episodes will run through to spring, while Season 5 will likely return in early 2020 with another expected, though not confirmed, 13 episodes.
